Charonta Pegram


I am Resident in Counseling in the state of Virginia. I am a 2010 graduate of Virginia State University with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a 2017 graduate of Grand Canyon University with a Masters of Psychology with an Emphasis in General Psychology, and a 2021 graduate of Grand Canyon University with a Masters in Professional Counseling. I also obtained a post-master’s certificate in marriage and family therapy from Grand Canyon University. Understanding the importance of continuing education and learning new and creative ways to service clients, I have certifications in yoga and mindfulness, sand tray/art therapy, suicide prevention, and ASAM.

I have been working in the field of mental health over 11 years. My past experience includes but is not limited to crisis stabilization counselor, intensive in-home counselor, mental health skill building counselor, therapeutic day treatment counselor, and behavioral health clinician. I currently sit on several executive boards for early childhood education in the area in which I reside. Much of my clinical background stems from working with children and families as that is where I find there is a more urgent need. I specialize in working with children who struggle with depression, anger, anxiety, and trauma. I have a history of providing clinical services to children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, and autism spectrum disorder. In working with children, I pride myself on being creative and meeting the client where they are. This starts the rapport building process while also stabilizing the therapeutic relationships. I also have a clinical background work with couples and families to resolve marriage and familial discord. I believe in a holistic approach as it relates to providing services to children and families. It is important to not only consider symptoms associated with a diagnosis but to also take into account the mental and social factors that are present. Working with the whole family tends to bring forth a more positive results in the therapeutic process.

My approach to treating clients that I service are CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy) based on the specific needs and presenting symptoms that a client is experiencing. I believe that changing the way you think about things can be a monumental factor to the healing process. Our thoughts tend to impact our beliefs and actions, therefore managing thoughts can lead to changing maladaptive behaviors. I also believe that learning to accept the adversities in life and committing to changing behavior can also be pivotal to reaching your best self.
